I have made homemade calzones before. I prefer the frozen bread dough the most. You let it out to thaw and rise first. Or, you can use the Pillsbury Pizza dough in a can. (faster solution). Roll out the dough and cut into 6-8" square peices. I fill my calzones with pepperoni, fresh mushrooms, cooked italian sausage, onions and green peppers and olives and of course, plenty of cheese and a little bit of homemade or store bought pizza sauce (not too much or it will make the dough wet and mushy). You can really fill them with any pizza toppings. Rember to fill only 1/2 the dough on one side, then fold the other 1/2 of the dough over it. Pinch the edges together. You can sprinkle the tops with a little garlic powder, pinch of salt and oregano. I find that a high oven temperature is best, close to 500 degrees. Preheat the oven and bake the calzones for about 20-25 minutes on a baking stone or baking sheet lined with parchment paper, they will be golden brown when they are done. Serve right away, with a little extra sauce on the side.
